The unmissable viewpoints of the region

A colour palette which comes alive with the rhythm of the days. Invoke a feeling of freedom when facing this vastness. The coast offers places for contemplation, hiking, and relaxation. Pause and let your senses come alive in front of these exceptional views.

An unspoilt nature

With soft dunes and craggy shores, nature is bountiful here. A protected ecosystem where the plants and wildlife grow and live in harmony. Nature reserves where you can perhaps chance upon a meeting of grey herons or common shelducks.

Treasures of history

From the Saint-Malo ramparts to the Ville-es-Nonais Viking camp, passing by Les Malounières, homes built by the Saint-Malo ship-owners in the 17th and 18th centuries, impressive, majestic, these relics of the past stand before you to plunge you into the heart of history.

The Emerald Coast

Its name, thought up by the Saint-Malo born Eugène Herpin in 1890, derives from the green emerald colour of the sea. The Emerald Coast is a Natura 2000 protected site. Between rocky points and beaches, the coastline has some beautiful surprises in store for you.

The Rance Valley

Starting from the tidal power plant, go and discover the banks of the river Rance. Explore the banks of the Rance and discover the exceptional places where past events have left their mark, creating an authentic landscape full of history and tradition.

You’ll glimpse old shipyards, fishing ports that come alive with the comings and goings of boats. Take the time to sail along the Rance - a complete change of scenery is within your reach. The tidal power plant uses sea power like the water-mills of the Middle Ages. There are many walks in this coastal hinterland: the villages will charm you with memories of the past and sheltered coves thanks to their relaxing calm... A moment full of emotion awaits you there.
